Birth: 1815
Washington County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Oct. 25, 1888
Allegheny County
Pennsylvania, USA

Married May 1, 1838. Her husband Burris Doudney Wood disappeared in St. Louis in 1854 with all of the family's money and was presumed murdered. News arrived just as family was about to get on a boat to join him, so Julia was left homeless & penniless with a large family to raise.

Maiden name has been seen spelled as Blackford, Blockford, Blanchford, and Blachford, hence the "sp?". Death notice gave place of birth as Washington County, PA.
